Easy Appetizers for Your Super Bowl Menu

Super Bowl 51 is just around the corner and NFL fans nationwide will gather around televisions at their favorite pub or restaurant to show loyalty to their beloved team. If you are hoping for a big turnout this Super Bowl 51, make sure you have something to offer your guests other than the usual chicken wings, greasy chips, or bland onion dip. Instead, try these Michelin Star recipes from renowned chefs that are part of the online sharing platform Today’s World Kitchen, and add some variety and flavor to your Super Bowl menu.

Salty, tangy, and tart skewers

Combine thin slices of cold roast beef, tangy blue cheese, and tart grapes on a skewer for the perfect flavor combination that is simple to create, yet will wow your Super Bowl pub guests.

Bacon wrapped dates

Even the best of Michelin Star Chefs know that no Super Bowl menu is complete without bacon. Wrap bacon around fresh dates with blue cheese, and roast the bundle until the outside bacon is roasted.

Caprese Skewers

Cherry tomatoes, baby mozzarella, olive oil, salt pepper, and a basil leave on a toothpick makes the perfect Caprese Skewer. No baking required, so up-and-coming chefs and sous chefs can really focus on the presentation of this hors d’oeuvre.

Salami Roll-Ups

Roll a dill pickle sphere with cream cheese inside of a piece of salami. Don’t prefer salami in your kitchen, not a problem! Michelin Star Chefs have also created variations that use prosciutto or ham instead. Be careful with this presentation, as spreading the cream cheese on the meat can be a bit messy.



Mini Pizzas

Create mini pizzas to add to your Super Bowl menu by using top prepared polenta rounds with olive oil, marinara, and mozzarella. Bake until crispy, then sprinkle Romano cheese on top.

Figs stuffed with walnuts and gorgonzola

This appetizer is delicious with fresh or dried figs. Cut each fig and stuff it with walnuts. Roast gorgonzola on top of each one until the top is crispy and brown.


Each of these Super Bowl menu, bite-size appetizers only requires a few ingredients and a few minutes of preparation. No matter how big the crowd is, any sous chef or chef in training can feel confident whipping up plenty of great food and please their restaurant guests with these Michelin inspired hors d’oeuvres.
